“Bundle Up. It’s Global Warming” – December 26, 2010, New York Times opinion
article by Judah Cohen.
It’s Orwellian when cold is declared warmth. It’s deceitful and insulting when
it occurs in the midst of a huge blizzard shutting down much of the northeast.
This is Global Warming?
Northern Hemisphere Snow & Ice Chart - 26 Dec 10
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
I would not even trust the date on the front page of The New York
Times because the newspaper long ago lost touch with reality, with
sanity, and, one can only assume, readers fleeing to other sources
for the news.
When the oft-called “newspaper of record” chooses a day on which
Mother Nature is demonstrating what tons of snow and chill air can
do to a huge swath of the nation’s northeast with effects reaching
Tallahassee, they are either trying to see just how stupid their
readers are or doubling down on the global warming hoax they have
Jim Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute declared we’re all doomed
back in 1988.
If you want a lesson in Orwell’s “doublethink”, the ability to hold
two contradictory thoughts or ideas at the same time, you need only
read the first line of Cohen’s article: “The earth continues to get
warmer, yet it’s feeling a lot colder outside.” In other words, who
are you going to believe? Me? Or your lying eyes?
It happens that I know quite a few meteorologists and climate
scientists. One of them is Joseph D’Aleo, an American Meteorological
Society Fellow, and editor of a science-based Internet site,
Ice Cap. Suffice to say, D’Aleo has been one of a hardy band of
skeptics that have countered the global warming hoax with hard
science, frequently dissecting the bogus “science” put forth by
government agencies including National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and
other such sources.
In an article titled “Why
We Need a New Global Data Set”, D’Aleo wrote the following:
“As I showed in the first analysis, the long term global temperature
trends in their data bases have been shown by numerous peer review
papers to be exaggerated by 30% to 50% and in some cases much more
by issues such as uncorrected urbanization (urban heat island), land
use changes, bad siting, bad instrumentation, and ocean measurement
techniques that changed over time.”
“NOAA made matters worse by removing the satellite ocean temperature
measurement which provide more complete coverage and was not subject
to the local issues except near the coastlines and islands.”
‘The result has been the absurd and bogus claims by NOAA and the
alarmists that we are in the warmest decade in 100 or even a 1000
years or more and our oceans are warmest ever.”
While Cohen is parroting the World Meteorological Organization’s
latest claim that “2010 will probably be among the three warmest
years on record, and 2001 through 2010 the warmest decade on record”
in England, the Daily Mail was reporting on December 5 that
“Britain, just as it was last winter and the winter before, was deep
in the grip of a cold snap, which has seen some temperatures plummet
to minus 20C, and that here 2010 has been the coolest year since
This parallels the weather occurring now in the U.S. where new low
temperature records are being set while cities like Columbia, S.C.,
had its first significant Christmas snow since weather records were
first kept in 1887!
Suffice to say that Cohen’s article repeats the usual blather about
melting Artic sea ice while waiting until the very end to admit that
“the Eastern United States, North Europe and East Asia have
experienced extraordinary snowy and cold winters since the turn of
A word to all who did not study meteorology; the World
Meteorological Organization, a creature of the United Nations is
also the mother ship of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
The IPCC, responsible for the Kyoto Protocols that called for limits
on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, was totally
discredited in 2009 when the exchange of thousands of emails
revealed its chief perpetrators of the global warming hoax were
manipulating the climate data it reported.
To trust the WMO or IPCC at this point in time is futile and
dangerous. To trust the garbage coming out of NOAA, GISS and other
government entities purporting to predict the climate is also to
trust the Environmental Protection Agency that will announce in
January 2011 its plans to regulate carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse gases, claiming they are “causing” a global warming that
is not happening.
Americans are being deliberately misled by rogue government agencies
with no scientific justification for their continued existence.
As for The New York Times, it is unfit to line the bottom of a
